356 teachers receive appointment letters in the state | Patna News


Patna: Education Minister Vijay Kumar Choudhary on Tuesday called on teachers to give their best to students and help improve the quality of education in the state. The state government takes care of all teachers, from primary to university, he said.
Handing over letters of appointment to no less than 356 teachers from different teacher training institutions across the state at a ceremony held here at the Department of Education, the minister said training and inspection were the two important aspects of educational reforms and therefore the role of newly appointed teachers of training institutions assumes greater importance.
“The true face of the Department of Education is reflected in the quality of education provided to students at an institution located in a remote region. The quality of education provided by teachers in different schools depends on the quality of their own training and therefore the role of newly recruited teachers from training colleges becomes more important and crucial,” he said.
Addressing teachers, the additional secretary general of the Department of Education Dipak Kumar Singh said there have been several significant changes in the curriculum and mode of teaching and assessment following the implementation of the new national education policy.
“Therefore, it is the responsibility of the teacher training institutions to ensure the effective implementation of the new curriculum as well as the innovative teaching methods in the schools,” Singh said and expressed the hope that the newly appointed teachers would perform their duties most sincerely in the best interests of society.
The directors of secondary and primary education as well as other heads of the department were present on this occasion.
Those who received the nomination letters included teachers of core curriculum (53), inclusive education (32), educational technology (18), planning and research (31), Hindi (20), English (17), Urdu (11), Sanskrit (6), mathematics (21), physics (23), chemistry (22), botany (19), zoology (22) and social sciences (61). They were all appointed on the recommendation of the Bihar Civil Service Commission. They will be assigned to six teacher training colleges, 33 district education and training institutes, 23 primary teacher training colleges and four block education and training institutes.
There are a total of 993 sanctioned faculty positions in all these institutions in which 456 are already working. With the current appointment, 181 positions would remain vacant and would be filled as soon as possible, education department sources said.
